Durable, creative, educational, and hours of fun with Topanimo Stacking Blocks
The outside box was a little little dented but the blocks inside were in perfect condition. I purchased these for my toddler grandchild. These quickly became one of his favorite toys. At first I would stack them and he would knock them over which was great fun. The he learned how to nest them, match the animal to to blocks, and play hide and seek with the animals inside of different blocks. He learned to line up the opening and to intentionally turn them so the one inside was hidden then to turn them again to open them up. He was pretty rough with these and I was worried that they might get crushed but that never happened. They are a very heavy duty cardboard/pressed board while being light weight. They have stood up to hours of play for over 18 months and are still going strong. I gave them to him before his first birthday even though it recommends 18 months. The little animals that come with it are soft and squeezable and he mixes them with his other toys giving them rides in his little bus and trucks. The best part is they have lasted well and will be available for his new little brother to play with when the time comes and I'm sure his big brother will love teaching him how to play with them.
